PENN SPORT BOSSES
Dean McClellan Denies
Eligibility of Freshmen
Dean McClellan, chairman of the
University Council on Athletics at
Penn, in a statement given out this
morning denied that freshmen had
been mado oliglblo for competition on
major Bpert teams. It was incorrectly
reported after tho meeting of tho
council yesterday that that body had
xoted to allow fr'ohmen to compete
In anyjsport whero tho lntcrcolleglato
rules did not prohibit their participa
tion. "All the council did," said Dean
McCI-Uan, "was to rulo that as here
tofore freshmen might compete lu
minor sports and contests where In
tercollegiate rules in such minor
sports did not forbid. This, as a mat
ter of fact, allows tholr uso In only
a small number of minor sports such
aa tcnpl?, golf and so forth."
COLUMBIA REJECTS OFFERS
'Crew Will Not Meet Yale or Har-
New York, March 15.- Although
tho Columbia varsity crew has received
invitations to row against both Yalo
and Harvard It la understood that tho
Blue and Whlto authorities havo decid
ed not to accept cither bid. Harvard
wanted Columbia to Journey to Cam
bridge for a raco on May 24, vvhllo
Yalo was anxious to have tho Mornlng
sldo Heights oartmen visit the Housa
torilo course at Derby on May 10, as
the third crew In the Yale-Princeton
race on that date.
Because of tho storm yesterday it Is
not likely that th6 Columbia crews will
go on tho water before Monday. Tho
selection of a coach Is still unsettled,
and It Is believed that no one will bo
named until after tho "committee on
athletics has had another meeting.

FOR jeara intercollegiate boxlM?
matches wero looked upon as some
thing poislble, but highly improbable.
Boxing has arrived In the field of col
legiate sports, and by next season It le
very likely that a full schedule of con
tests between colleges will bo arranged.
The biggest boom ever handed the
sport at Penn occurred yesterday, when
the athletic council announced that
boxing hereafter would be recognised
aa one of the minor branches of ath
letics on a par with soccer, wrestling,
swimming and fencing .
Tals recognition, decided upon at tn
regular monthly meeting la .o es'frc
afternoon, means that an appropriation
will be set aside for the sport and better
equipment w HI be obtained. As It stands
now the few seta of gloves on hand are
working overtime. As boon as ono stu
dent Is through with them thejj so .to
another, and many pupils aro kept Idle,
on tho bench when they might be in ac
tlon It thero woro enough of tho padciei
Tho announcement by tho athletic,
council was the realization of an ambi
tion on the part ot George Decker, the.
box'ng instructor. For several ycarR
George has been nursing tho bopo thai
boxing would bo promoted to a minor
sport at Pcnn and intercollegiate boxlnr
allowed, but at the start of the rrescnt
academio car ho was 1 cglnnlng to be
lieve that tho boon would never come.
When the students returned from thn
service It became ovldent that there
would be a demand for tho sport. Manv
of them had learned tho ludhucntn or
the gamo In camps and they liked it.
There was a largo Increase In tho num
ber of men repotting to Decker for In
structions after tho second term started
More than fifty have signed up this j car
That boxing was on Its aj to recog-
nltion was pointed out by Captain Grlf
nth, fouuer athletic instructor at Camp
Pike, who has succeeded Doctor Itay
crcft on tho training c-a'inp activities
commission. In a speech before tho Na
tional Collegiatu Association in New
York last December Captain Griffith
stated that boxing bad been taught to
so many collego students while in camp
that It was more likely that they would
continue tho sport when they returned
to their institutions Such has been the
